Palace Supper Club
Palace Supper Club is a multi-room restaurant, bar and lounge in the heart of Fortitude Valley with a 137-square-metre balcony.
It serves immediately recognisable lunch and dinner favourites in a sophisticated, opulent setting. The large outdoor dining area in particular is something special for the Valley, and is perfect for Queensland summer nights.
The cuisine is billed as “modern Australian”, which in this case means a focus on quality meat and seafood with a European bent. Think lamb racks, spatchcock, scallops in brown butter and crab tortellini. And, if you’re so inclined, $200 Italian caviar. And it’s open late, serving food until 11.30pm most nights.
A lounge menu is a condensed take on the restaurant’s offerings; meze plates, spanner crab croquettes, onion rings and kingfish sashimi all feature in the broad range of share plates and snacks.
The wine and cocktail list is relatively conservative but hits all the right marks, especially when it comes to the French selection procured from former Montrachet owner Thierry Galichet.
